I applied for a specific job description, then was told that another person was hired for that job but that they would "offer" me a different topic. I told client that I thought they had to set up a new job listing, and they told me , "no. i can just offer it to you here." [in messenger]. Is this standard? How do I ensure it is binding?
They did show me a copy in messenger of the escrow account, but also that they hired another freelancer for the job?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As long as they create and send an actual job offer to you that you can accept/decline and fund the escrow amount in that offer, then you would certainly be fine. I have clients that hire freelancers for several different niches/titles through the same job post.
The key is that they have to actually hire you and fund the escrow payment.
Thanks for your reply, Kathryn. I was a little gun-shy at all of the scammer horror-stories and the quickness at which I was offered the job. However, the client did issue and official offer in the messages and funded the escrow before I began. They were very helpful and patient and has paid
